We understand that some people with a disability may require a carer to attend. Therefore we provide complimentary admission for carers when accompanying a disabled person. 

Paying disabled guests at WynterCon are entitled to one complimentary carer admission. Please bring valid documentation with you to WynterCon to collect your carer’s wristband from our admissions desk on arrival. You do not need to apply for a carer’s wristband in advance.

Disabled guests, who have purchased a ticket, can obtain one free carer’s wristband each day upon arrival when providing proof of disability. For proof of disability please bring ONE of the following forms of documentation:-

  • Letter of entitlement to Disability Living Allowance (DLA)/Personal Independent Payments (PIP)/Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)/War Pension Mobility Supplement (WPMS), dated within the last 12 months.
  • A copy of a valid Blue Badge (both sides as the photo ID is required).
  • In the case of visual impairment, a registration card, known as the BD8 or a Certificate of Visual Impairment (CVI) (photo ID required).
  • A Cred-Ability Access Card bearing the “Essential Companions” symbol.

A carer must be 16 years of age or over and capable of assisting the attendee with a disability. The carer is expected to understand the disabled person’s condition and assist them in managing it for the duration of the visit. If more than one carer’s wristband is required, a letter from a GP or consultant is needed, stating the number of carers required.

Free carer wristbands are issued solely at the discretion of the organisers.

Please do not buy a ticket for your carer as this will NOT be refunded.

Yes, you can. If you have a one-day ticket you will be issued with a unique coloured and printed wristband that you must wear at all times to regain access to the event. The wristband must be visible at all times.

We invite press applications for our event, but please note that being a member of the press does not guarantee free entry, as our event supports a charity. Press passes need to be applied for and approved in advance (at least 10 working days before the event). If you would like to be considered for a Press Pass, please email us at [email protected] with your credentials and details of how your press coverage could support our cause.

Yes, of course you can and we hope you will! If you’re planning to dazzle us with your costume, we salute you! Please review our Cosplay Guidelines to ensure everyone has a fantastic and smooth experience.

Most of the people in costume and cosplayers will be happy to pose for you so you can take a photograph if asked politely. Please be polite and ask them first if it is OK to take a photograph. All we ask is that you respect their decision.

Promethean Promotions Ltd are not responsible for any photographs taken by third parties at the event, including where and how they are used or published.

Cosplay Competition entries close at 13:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.

Yes, guests will be charging for autographs, this is normally on a printed image which the guest will sign for you unless you have a personal item you would like signed such as a book, DVD or poster.

Please note that it is the guest who dictates the prices charged for a signing and/or selfie, not the event organisers. Wherever practicable we will publish the prices for each guest before the event, once they have been confirmed to us by the guest or their agent.

No, you do not have to pre-book autographs. It is simply a case of coming along to WynterCon on the day, finding the guests you would like to meet and joining the queue to see them.

All guests can make their appearance at various times, they will take breaks for lunch and refreshments. Most guests will attend the event all weekend, but if a guest has advised in advance that they will only be appearing at certain times or on a certain day we will note this on our website and provide updates on our Social Media channels before the event itself.

Please be aware that Celebrity guests may have to leave early to catch transport to get home and that their appearance at WynterCon is subject to work and/or family commitments, over which we have no control. If you are attending on Sunday we strongly suggest that you visit the guests as early as practical in case they may need to depart before the show closes.

Unfortunately, we do not have any control over the guest’s schedules at all. Late changes to filming and other commitments can result in a guest having to cancel. Any guest cancellations will be announced on the WynterCon website and our Social Media channels as soon as we have exhausted every possibility of getting them to the event and can confirm that they definitely cannot attend.

All guest appearances are subject to work and family commitments and may change at very short notice. We will do our best to try and keep you informed and strongly advise you to keep checking our website for updates.
